This is the list of my ratings to new shows based on every
first episode. Most of proper nouns in this list are my

*:fair, **:enjoyable, ***:must see
a:good animation/artwork, d:good drama/story,
h:humorous/hilarious, m:good music, v:violent,

the officers. Then the section is servived. But five directors
come to keep eyes on him. I like the ED song.

evil Black King and his good daughter princess Fiena's hands,
guardian fairy Pirika disappeares and the world is covered by

Although the society has officially abolished the discrimination
for half-human, the prejudice still remains in people's mind.

I would strongly recommend you see at least the second episode before
giving up on this one. It went from average (based on the first
episode) to clear best of the season so far (after 4 episodes) in my
opinion.

I watched the second episode and understood why Tania is so
merciless and cynical. She remembers her past existence and
that explains everything. I don't like such personality,
but it's interesting to know what and how Tania is really
fighting for. So, I will watch some more episodes.

I like it because:

1. It is set in pseudo-Europe. I happen to like shows set in the US
(Kaleido Star, Chrono Crusade, Gunsmith Cats, and a relatlvely short
list of others), Europe (Victorian Romance Emma, Croisee in a Foreign
Labyrinth, Hellsing - both versions, and a few others), and
Psuedo-Europe (This Show, FMA - both versions, Scrapped Princess, and
some others).

2. It is not a "high school anime," but rather they are trying
something different.

3. The "cute girl" isn't "moe," rather to quote the last line of the
first episode ,(I hope I can rememeber the line somewhat accurately)
she is "the devil in the guise of a cute girl." Even the other "cute
girl," who seems a bit nicer, is still a soldier for the Nazis (or
whatever they are called in this version of Pseudo-Europe).

I don't have preference to where or when a show to set. In this show,
I dislike Tania as is. She is a b/w/itch. But I'm looking forward
to how it ends. Is it all a dream of the "past exstence"? Hope not.

The historical base of this show is more the Prussian dominated German
Kaiserreich than the Nazireich. The fear to be encircled by enemies
was the reason for the Germans to start Wold War I in 1914 as a war on
two fronts. It is always interesting, how accurate the Japanese autors
work things out.

Btw, meanwhile I follow this show, too.

Well, yes she is, but I think she is a very interesting character. Not
"likeable" necessarily, but to me "likable" and "interesting" are 2
different things.

I don't know if this example really explains it, but of the main 3
characters in School Days, Makoto is neither likable or interesting,
Kotonoha (I hope I spelled that right) is likable but not interesting
(she is real sexy, too, especially in her "cosplay waitress outfit, but
that is also another matter), and Sekai is interesting, but not likable
(at least not to me).

Thank you. I guess I don't my history that well, so I guess I meant
"German (or whatever the country was called in this version of
Pseudo-Europe) Army," but my point is that:

1. The girls are "cute," but are "real soldiers" that kill people and
do all the other things real soldiers do and not ditzy ditzes that ditz
through their ditzy life like Osaka or Yui.

2. The creators put them in actual military uniforms, they did not put
them in frilly dresses like Izetta (a show I happen to like), sexy
outfits like in Bikini Warriors, a show that only held my interest for 1
or 2 episodes, specifically because of trying to sell these bikinis as
having some sort of magic that made them into battle armor.

3. They also didn't make these girls into fan service mascots by
contriving an excuse to have them run around in their pantsu, like the
"leg propellers" in Strike Witches.
